A VIBRANT VINTAGE BEAUTY

This impossible-to-ignore buckle was crafted by renowned Zuni husband and wife, Helen and Lincoln Zunie; their work is highly coveted and collectible. The impressive inlay horse is made with onyx, natural turquoise, and shell, set in heavy silver. The artists added dimensionality to the eye and texture to the surface with silver wire twists. The strap is a jet black leather with traditional tooling. A belt that will add the perfect finishing touch.
